I ordered this keyfob from Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KTJ4RUG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

We had two keyfobs before, but we have either lost them or they stopped working (I currently have no other keyfobs, other than the one I just bought). The Amazon car configure program said it would work with my 2001 Pontiac Aztek. I tried using this program sequences:

1. Close all doors.
2. Press and hold the Unlock button on door lock switch on drivers door.
Hold until instructed to release in step 6.
3. Insert key into the ignition cylinder but do not turn it.
4. Remove key from ignition and then insert key into ignition without turning ignition cylinder and remove key.
5. Insert key in ignition a third time and leave key in ignition. Do Not turn ignition.
6. Release door lock switch on drivers door panel. A Chime will sound 3 times indicating that you are in programming mode.
7. Press both the Lock and Unlock buttons on the remote up to 30 seconds.
A chime will sound 2 times if remote has programmed successful.
8. Repeat step 7 if you are programming additional remotes.
9. Remove key from ignition to exit programming mode.

I have also tried turning the key to the "ON" opsition before following the steps and tried swapping step 3 and 2. Even though doing these things, I have not been able to get the car to beep the two or three times it is supposed to before holding down the lock and unlock buttons on the keyfob itself.

So, does anyone know a solution or have had this problem before? I'd be very grateful for your help.

That sounds correct to me, so let me ask some "dumb questions":

Do you ever hear the vehicle's chime working at other times? Perhaps the chime itself has become disconnected?

Are all doors securely closed? I remember when I did my car, the rear hatch was closed but somehow not completely.

That is all I can think of at the moment.

The chime does still work, it chimes when, say, the door is open with the key in ignition, and a few times after the car actually starts. The doors I'm sure were closed all the way, and it wasn't warning me of a door ajar. This is really confusing me. Thanks for your reply!
